Mums find good rea­son to run

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Westernopinion -

EIGHT mums from across Perth are join­ing forces to run for a rea­son.

The moth­ers all have a child with per­ma­nent hear­ing loss and have de­cided to fundraise for Telethon Speech & Hear­ing in Wem­b­ley in sup­port of the pro­gram which is help­ing their chil­dren learn to hear and speak.

“We are all bat­tling through an of­ten frus­trat­ing jour­ney to en­sure our chil­dren can learn to hear and speak,” their fundraiser page said.

“But we aren’t alone in this; Telethon Speech & Hear­ing sup­ports us ev­ery step of the way.”

All of the chil­dren are cur­rently en­rolled in the Chat­ter­box Pro­gram, an early in­ter­ven­tion pro­gram for chil­dren with hear­ing loss which uses a multi-dis­ci­plinary ap­proach to de­velop the chil­dren’s skills.

So far the moth­ers’ group has raised more than $5600 for the cause. They will take part in the Run for a Rea­son in May.
